Ensoft is now part of Cisco Learn More About Cisco


Are you interested in a graduate position with us? A full internship during the summer? Or a week long micro-internship? If so, you'll want to know what you need to apply to Ensoft:

  • You must want a career developing software - that's what we do.
  • The barrier to entry is high, so you need a proven academic capability. For example, you will be taking a numerate degree at one of the UK's leading Universities. As a guide, please do not apply unless you have A grades at A-level or equivalent, (or good excuses!).
  • Some experience would help (see Eshan's casebook), but isn't essential (see Paul's casebook). It's great to find recent graduates who spend their spare time writing code, who want to turn their creative outlet into a successful career. But we can also train graduates who have the right potential to shine at software engineering. (This is for graduate roles; for internships, we do look for enough experience to become quickly productive, so we can offer a rewarding placement.)
  • Finally, you must be sociable. The process is collaborative, so you should enjoy working closely with the other people in your team.
  • Oh, by the way, we believe that we are creating an exceptional company, so you need a pride and passion for your work and should expect to work with us for many years.

So, if you want a job at Ensoft, you can apply now by uploading your CV using the link on this page. If you are a finalist, you can have your first job arranged before you embark on those hours of study needed to get through finals.

We hold interview days in Oxford and Cambridge most terms, and our interview process lasts about two hours. As our interview dates approach, we advertise our application deadlines on our Events page.
